I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed or has issues with a few roundabouts in Canberra that seem badly designed. The main one that comes to mind for me is the big one on the intersection of Coranderrk Street and Parkes Way near the city. My issue with it is that coming from the southeast on Parkes Way and turning right onto Coranderrk, both lanes have right turn markings on them. This means that when you are turning right from the left lane, there is the potential to be cutting in front of people who are coming from Coranderrk St. and about to travel north west on Parkes Way. This of course happens when you’re slowing down to take the corner, and they’re speeding up to exit the roundabout.
Though I can’t put my finger on any other specific ones, I seem to remember roundabouts around the city where you are forced to change lanes within them or are otherwise not well laid out.
Does anyone else find this?
Or am I just too picky?
